Gnocchi Casserole in Creamy Tomato Sauce
Pillowy bites of gnocchi smothered in a silky tomato sauce, topped with golden cheese. Comfort food heaven! Though I make this with store bought Marinara Sauce, I like to freshen up the flavours by simmering it will garlic and onion before using.
- 1.5 lb gnocchi , store bought
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 2 garlic cloves , minced
- 1/2 onion , finely chopped
- 700 ml / 24 oz Marinara Sauce
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1 tsp Italian seasoning (optional)
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese , grated
- 1/2 cup basil leaves , torn/chopped
Preheat oven to 350F.
Cook gnocchi according to packet directions. Drain and transfer to 1.5 quart baking dish.
Heat oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic and onion, cook for 1 1/2 minutes.
Add Marinara Sauce. Turn heat down and bring to simmer. Stir through cream and Seasonings, if using.
Pour over gnocchi. Stir to spread out. Top with cheese. Bake for 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and golden.
Garnish with basil leaves if desired and serve immediately.
